Re: pt5598hd convergence

I purchased mine about 5 months ago. Ive been researching and playing around with the remote. This will help you on the way. With the set off, press "Mute", 1, 8, 2 then turn the tv on. This will bring up the main settings, dont change any values on any page, unless you write the origonal values down first, because the total reset doesnt return everything to a "factory" preset. Scroll down to reset and press the enter key. I havent come across any owners or service manuals, and support is slim to none. I wrote a review for the same model on a wal-mart site I believe, and it explains adjustments in more detail. If you want to try to figure out the buttons for yourself, while the tv is on, press "Mute 1, 8, 3" this is another set of adjustments for finer detail. If you change an adjustment here and your not sure, just press the exit button. To save your adjustments in the convergence mode, press and hold the enter button, it should flash a few times and center itself on the screen. If you make a mistake in this mode, the total reset I mentioned first should get you back on track. If you find anything out or have a question, feel free to write me at This is a nice TV, wonder why they stopped making them.

Screen issues

In the customer menu first look for convergence--if this is Akai it is made by Samsung.

in the convergence menu will be either a grid of lines or several crosses--examine and see if your red line is out of position there.

If it is it may just require with the remote adjustment in that menu.

Cleaning will not resolve a red line.

let me know what you find.

HD image has lost sharpness

You will need to replace the convergance IC's if the colors are no longer lined up and they won't line up using the tv's controls. Also, if the crt lenses have a lot of dust on them removing that will help the sharpness and brightness of the picture. Don't use canned air. Get a crt lens cloth.
